I've been featured in a new book published by KP Craft and available on the Sew Daily section in the Interweave Store. Craft it Now featured more than 75 projects in almost any craft medium you can think of including sewing, knitting, polymer clay, jewelry, painting, paper crafting and much more.
My pillow, which features fabric and wool scraps is prominently featured in the introduction portion of the book as well as in the contents which includes complete instructions.
Here it is staged on the white adirondack chair. The publisher was super generous and sent me several copies To celebrate, I am giving three of them away on my blog. Leave me a comment and I will pick four of you at random and send the book to you. (Please leave a comment by May 8th, 2014 at 12 AM).
There are lots of inspiring projects in this delightful book. I love this version of the classic tomato pincushion by designer Paula Ginder. She printed the band using inkjet fabric sheets which is a favorite technique of mine. I also love how she incorpated "leaf ribbon" and baby rick rack into this project. And she even used a paper flower in this design.
My pillow was created using stacked wool felt and fabric pieces, machine sewn with various stitches and then embellished with button centers and hand sewn to a pillow cover. It's a project that incorporates lots of fabric scraps!
Let me send you one of my extra copies, leave me a comment before May 8th at 12 AM! I need the extra space for crafting supplies.
